February- A Poem

Ok......you'll probably choke while reading this so please swallow your food first. I wrote this poem for Blue Angel Poet Society. Every Sunday night Persephone Phoenix opens Blue Angel to poetry reading..and then there is a challenge poem. Where a word or phrase is tossed out and those inclined write a poem right then and there and deliver it. (example: Things That Go Bump In The Night ---if you want me to blog that one someday let me know)

But the challenge a week or so ago was simply the word FEBRUARY

February
Somewhere between
The month of Alcoholics,
Red Pyscho-delics
False Love
Conception
Deception
February
Caught alone...........
After the Holidays,
Before Spring dawns
February
From which the,
"winter of our discontent"
Lingers
Fingers numb....
The homeless distraught
February
Thanksfully March's parades
wait closely by
anxious for that short month to end,
and bring the Spring
AGAIN
---------------
End
